“The first few weeks I did make mistakes, but my Dietitian helped me work through it and we went back to basics and kept consistency… I followed her advice and each week the scales went down, the tape got shorter and I started to feel incredibly motivated and proud of myself. I was kept accountable in a supportive environment where I could feel vulnerable and be open and honest with no judgement.”
